In the spirit of the holidays, here’s a fun and social spin on the classic, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’. May you and your loved ones enjoy your holiday season!
Twas the night before my launch and throughout all of the web,
My influencers were ready, much was to be said.
The hash tags were chosen with delicate care,
Knowing that soon they would be #everywhere!
Because we were global, we chose the right time,
We did not want this conversation to flat line.
Scheduling out tweets and Facebook posts,
We were excited to see which channel generated the most!
When up on my listening center, there arose such a clatter,
I ran to my Radian6 dashboard to see what was the matter!
Looking at my listening dashboard I analyzed what it said,
We had a confused customer, oh Frightened Fred. Read More »
When I told my daughter that her gramma was going to be with her other (younger) grandchild this year for Halloween, I did not expect her reaction. She’s 12 and has had gramma with her every year since birth and I figured she knew she would eventually have to share.

We fired up the WebEx, turned on the webcams and the kids had a ball. Everyone get to see each other, there was lots of conversation and excitement and gramma Read More »
I was thinking about all the supply chain agility issues Santa would have this year – probably the same every year. Like the fact that he has to deliver to hundreds of millions of folks on one particular day of the year.
He’s been doing this for hundreds of years with only one workshop -- not located anywhere near any major distribution routes and with a small but obviously highly productive workforce. Add to this his orders come in only a few weeks before 25th December – some on the 24th! And somehow he hasn’t any carry over stock on the 26th. Miss the 25th and you’ve had it!
Downside of this squeeze is that you can often get that same ol’ pair of socks, that boring polyester tie or that colorful sweater that you’ll never wear. Maybe even a lump of coal if you’re really unlucky. So here’s a message to Santa… Read More »
